Our been-there-done-that Google Card­board tips

Stuff Singapore - - PROJECTS -

1

You want strong, thin card­board: try this with any­thing flimsy and you’ll end up with a ball of mashed pa­per and tears.

2

When you print the plans, make sure you print at 100% – a lot of printer soft­ware tends to help­fully down­size your print­out to 90% to fit it all in one page with a nice spa­cious bor­der.

3

A good sharp scalpel and a ruler (to guide your blade) are es­sen­tial – if you use scis­sors, as Google cheer­ily sug­gests, it’ll take four hours, and the end re­sult will look like a wasps’ nest.

4

When it doesn’t fit to­gether prop­erly, just keep tap­ing it to­gether un­til it looks about right.

5

If all else fails, you can achieve a sim­i­lar ef­fect by hold­ing the two lenses roughly 40mm away from your phone and mov­ing your face in front of them.
